My grandfather passed away yesterday. We were very close. He taught me to box, and to work hard, and to be a fighter. He led an incredible life, and will be missed. He left me 5 rifles, 2 shotguns, and a pistol. Among the rifles was this type 99 arisaka. I've done a little bit of research on it, and have found that its one of the earlier models. I believe that it dates somewhere around 1939. Any information would be appreciated as I know very little about the weapon. Mostly I thought that you guys would be interested in it.
